Ranked in the top ten of all non-team Washington Township agents for transactions*, GB Landrigan was just out of college when he started helping friends buy and sell their homes. Just as his REALTOR. father and grandfather did for decades, he sold what he knew.
The Indianapolis North Side, Midtown, and Downtown are in his blood -- the history of the homes, the personalities, the tucked-away gems, and, of course, its unique and varied housing market. Of the eight generations of GB's family who have been Hoosiers, four have called the Indianapolis north side their home. He lives in the Meridian Hills area today after growing up in Butler-Tarkington, Avalon Hills, and Crows Nest. He also lived in Downtown's St. Joseph's neighborhood for several years.
GB has served on the board of directors of the MIBOR Realtor® Association, is a long-time member of MIBOR's Professional Standards and Grievance Committees (ethics), and is a member of the National Association of Realtor®'s (NAR) Residential Real Estate Council (RRC). GB is one of just 3% of REALTORS nationally to have earned his Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, the highest designation available for residential real estate brokerage.
He is Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designee of the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing and has received the Guild designation, the highest designation for this niche market. He also holds the RRC’s Luxury Home Certification, is a certified MIBOR's Master Professional (MPRO), and is a fellow of MIBOR’s Real Estate Academy of Leadership (REAL). GB has also been awarded the Five-Star Professional Award twelve times, including 2023.

Family Roots in Indianapolis Real Estate
The roots of GB Landrigan & Company are among the deepest of Indianapolis real estate firms. G.B.'s grandfather, Bruce Savage, whose voice briefly took him to the Broadway stage, began work in real estate brokerage in 1940. His firm, the Bruce Savage Company, soon became the largest residential brokerage in Indiana. It centered on the sale of fine North Side and Downtown properties. In the late 1950s, Savage was appointed by President Eisenhower to be the head of the US Public Housing Commission, now known as HUD.
A few years after Savage returned to Indianapolis, his son-in-law Richard Landrigan became owner of the firm, later known as Savage/Landrigan. Landrigan had briefly served as the city’s second human rights commissioner after graduating from Butler. At a time when real estate firms were abandoning their specialties in favor of a much wider audience, he made the choice to retain the company's traditional emphasis, while quietly expanding it to cover Carmel and other emerging North Side areas.
Landrigan died unexpectedly in 1984 and the firm closed several months later. In an article reporting the closure, the Indianapolis Business Journal remarked that Savage/Landrigan was one of the area's "oldest and most respected" real estate companies.
The following year, G.B. Landrigan entered real estate at the age of 21. Working with one of the larger firms in Indianapolis, he continued to specialize in the same areas as his father and grandfather. In 2005, he decided to launch GB Landrigan & Company as one of the Indianapolis area's few true boutique firms. At one point embracing ten agents in his firm, Landrigan realized that he is better suited to focusing on his own clientele. Today, he and associated non-team agent Gretchen Witt are based from offices at Keystone at the Crossing, just behind the Fashion Mall.
Knowledge of the current market and the area’s history, an emphasis on doing things correctly, the use of appropriate technology to help clients, never representing both sides of a transaction, and his personal availability are all ways that G.B. uses to help his clients leave a transaction as pleased as is possible.
